Durham Service 48 - Emergency Road Closure

12 April 16


Emergency closure of Deerness Bridge between Ushaw Moor & New Brancepeth

Following a bridge inspection, a decision was taken by Durham County Council to close Deerness Bridge with immediate effect to all traffic and pedestrians. The closure is expected to last around a month, however this may change subject to further inspections and any remedial work required.

Unfortunately, due to this closure, Service 48 is currently unable to serve New Brancepeth and is terminating at Ushaw Moor instead. A shuttle bus is in place between New Brancepeth and Langley Moor, to allow passengers to connect onto Services 46, 49 and 49A. Service 47 (operated by Scarlet Band) is also operating to a revised route and timetable to provide a connection between Ushaw Moor and New Brancepeth, however Arriva North East tickets are not valid on this service.

Timetables for both the shuttle bus and Service 47 are below;
